This local Hospice has been doing a very difficult job for a very long time, they provide a top totch service under the most challening cercusmstances and ensure Walsall children have somewhere to go when the going gets tough. I will be doing some fundraising this year with my coleagues and we look forward to working withb Sally and the team
Its such a great cause! The staff are very friendly and work so hard. When I worked there as a volunteer co-ordinator, I feel that everything was done to ensure the happiness and welfare of the children in respite.
When I think of the word hospice, I think of morbidity and sadness. However, this is not the case at Acorns! I am a volunteer there and when I arrive and start to spend time with the children it just feels as if I am volunteering at an extended holiday camp. I quickly forget about the condition of the child and they abstain from their condition for an hour or so aswell, as we simply just enjoy painting or playing videogames. This is testament to the environment Acorns has created, where the focus is not on death but life. Everyone is so happy there-it is not a place that the children fear going to but look forward to going to.
Sally and the guys at Acorns do an absolutely brilliant job, and a job that could easily go unnoticed unless we SHOUT ABOUT IT!! The work they do is second to none, and benefits many people, both directly and indirectly. Keep up the great work guys!!
Such a friendly, comfortable haven for all the children, which are provided with the most professional hands-on care. The support they offer parents and siblings can really make a difference, with the comfort of knowing that their child is being well cared for and most importantly enjoying themselves.
Acorns is amazing in that they give every child and family member who comes through their doors the utmost love care and respect. Each child is made to feel special and their time with acorns, whilst often life limited is always fulfilled, enriched and complete. The dedication of the staff, volunteers and supporters of Acorns is testament to the amazing service they provide. Long may it continue x
Acorns is a fantastic charity which is fully committed to caring and supporting life limited children and young people and their families. They do such a great job, ensuring that families can make the most of every moment they have together
It is an asset to all parents and children who pass through their doors.As a member of the local community i can honestly say it is an honour to have such a hardworking and caring facility within our area.Thankfully i personally have never had to use them but i do work for the local secondary school who help raise funds for them. I also love to see the care workers out and about with these children and showing them the local area. The children despite their circumstances always look happy and interact well with the carer x
